Bombay HC stays Maharashtra Govt's Decision on Maratha Quota

Mumbai, Nov 14: In a huge blow to Maharashtra government, the Bombay high court on Friday stayed the decision of its decision to give 16% reservation to Marathas in  government jobs and educational institutions.

Giving quota to Marathas in public and educational sectors were announced by the former Maharashtra chief minister Prithviraj Chavan-led government ahead of the state assembly polls.

Along with it, the court also stayed the state government's decision to provide 5% reservation to Muslims in public service, allowing the quota in educational institutions.

However, the newly formed Maharashtra government led by Devendra Fadnavis has decided to approach the Supreme Court challenging the high court's decision Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in Mumbai, on Friday.

Reacting to the court's verdict, chief minister Devendra Fadnavis  said, "The state government is fully supportive of Maratha quota. We will appeal in SC on the HC ruling. We will take measures to ensure that the quota remains."
